Chosen for Good Works

“What did God choose us for? What was His purpose? All that is good in us is from Him, the fruit of His electing grace. In order to do good works, we must be changed; it is so profoundly revolutionary a change that it is nothing less than a new creation (Eph 2:10). The very good works that we are to ‘walk in’ each day have been prepared by God. That has an astounding implication for our daily lives as Christians! It makes each day profoundly meaningful. Each day fulfills a part of God’s eternal purpose for us.” –Benjamin B. Warfield “Selected Shorter Works” Vol. 1, p. 291 (from “Works of Benjamin B. Warfield — Notes” by Michael Stohlmeyer)

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
